After much speculation, the wait is finally over as it has been confirmed that the Atherton family are moving to Trek Factory Racing for 2016.
After spending a victorious 4 years with GT it was confirmed earlier this week that Rachel, Dan, Gee and Taylor Vernon will be riding for the Trek Downhill division.
With a wealth of titles between them, including 6 World Championships, 15 National, 2 European and over 30 World Cup wins, the Atherton trio has secured their position in cycling’s history books.
Their combined experience of riding, racing and living for bikes will make for an interesting partnership with Trek in upcoming years. No doubt will we begin to see the Atherton influence on their already impressive range of mountain bikes.
